Big3: Allen Iverson no-called, no-showed games

In many ways, Ice Cube’s fledgling 3-on-3 league has hitched its wagon to Allen Iverson’s star.

Iverson has headlined the Big3’s promotion. He’s the only Hall of Famer playing in the league. He’s the only player-coach.

But Iverson didn’t play in Philadelphia – where 76ers fans were eager to see him – and then missed games in Dallas entirely.

Big3 release:

Allen Iverson did not show up to today’s BIG3 week 6 game in Dallas as expected.  We had no advance warning and do not have information as to all the circumstances surrounding his absence. The league is launching an investigation to gather all the facts and then will make an informed, official statement.

DerMarr Johnson, Three’s Company’s co-Captain, stepped in to fulfill Player Captain and Coaching duties.

This is shocking.

Hopefully, Iverson is OK.
